The Department of Landscape Architecture and Regional & Community Planning (LARCP) offers two accredited professional degree options: a Master of Landscape Architecture and a Master of Regional & Community Planning; an online Master of Science in Community Development; and a Community Planning Minor. The programs provide nationally recognized and affordable education, real world engagement, and a strong LARCP community. Graduates of the programs are in demand throughout the country in private practice, governmental service, and academic setting.

The Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA) and Master of Regional & Community Planning (MRCP) degrees have two entry points. Undergraduate students complete a five-year plus Non-Baccalaureate Track, see Department of Landscape Architecture and Regional & Community Planning page in the Undergraduate Catalog. Students who have completed a bachelor’s degree, regardless of the field of study, complete a Post-Baccalaureate Track of study (3-years plus for the MLA and 2-years for the MRCP).

The MLA program prepares students to create and protect outdoor places of significance to the human experience; address ecological and social needs; plan for inclusive and equitable communities: to design landscape. Information about the resources and opportunities supporting students’ preparation for professional practice is available at https://apdesign.k-state.edu/larcp/la/.

The MRCP program prepares students to be advocates for resilient cities that enhance quality of life in ways that are sustainable, equitable, and accessible to all citizens. We help communities address challenges related to resource conservation, growing of diverse populations, and continually changing technologies and value systems. Information about the resources and opportunities supporting students’ preparation for professional practice is available at https://apdesign.k-state.edu/larcp/rcp/.

The Master of Science in Community Development prepares students to promote participatory democracy, sustainable development, rights, equality, economic opportunity, and social justice, through the organization, education and empowerment of people within their communities. Information about the fully online degree is available at https://online.k-state.edu/programs/community-development-masters/.
